Trump Lawyer Arranged $130,000 Payment for Adult-Film Stars Silence Agreement just before election

A lawyer for President Donald Trump arranged a $130,000 payment to a former adult-film star a month before the 2016 election as part of an agreement that precluded her from publicly discussing an alleged sexual encounter with Mr. Trump, according to people familiar with the matter.

Michael Cohen, who spent nearly a decade as a top attorney at the Trump Organization, arranged payment to the woman, Stephanie Clifford, in October 2016 after her lawyer negotiated the nondisclosure agreement with Mr. Cohen, these people said.

Ms. Clifford, whose stage name is Stormy Daniels, has privately alleged the encounter with Mr. Trump took place after they met at a July 2006 celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, these people said. Mr. Trump married Melania Trump in 2005.

Mr. Trump faced other allegations during his campaign of inappropriate behavior with women, and vehemently denied them. In this matter, there is no allegation of a nonconsensual interaction.

senator: Graham confirmed Trump made "shithole countries" remark


Scott, the Senate's lone black Republican, told The Post and Courier on Friday that Graham confirmed the newspaper's account of the conversation, which Scott said he found "incredibly disappointing."

“We ought not to disparage any other nation, frankly," Scott said. "Thinking about the success of America. It is the melting pot. It’s the ability to weave together multiple communities together for one nation.”

Graham reportedly challenged Trump on the comments, according to an account of the meeting earlier Friday from Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin (Ill.).

"My colleague (Graham) spoke up and made a direct comment on what the president said,” Durbin said, according to MSNBC. “For him to confront the president as he did, literally sitting next to him, took extraordinary political courage and I respect him for it."



Two GOP senators said Friday they "do not recall" President Trump's reference to "shithole" countries during an Oval Office meeting on immigration. Sens. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and David Perdue (R-Ga.) issued a joint statement saying they did not recall the president making the exact comments, and called out Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) for confirming the comments. "In regards to Senator Durbin’s accusation, we do not recall the President saying these comments specifically but what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest," the senators wrote.

Haitians - represent the second largest group of people employed by Trumps Mar-a-Lago

People from #Haiti, a country which bigot Trump calls a “shithole” represent the second largest group of people employed by Trump’s Mar-a-Lago. That’s all I have to say!! These people from “shithole” countries apparently represent hardworking individuals who Trump exploits.

Ex-Trump Hispanic advisory council member: Trump could beat 'ticket of Jesus and the Virgin Mary' in 2020

A former member of President Trump's Hispanic advisory council said Tuesday he thinks Trump could win reelection against "a combined ticket of Jesus and the Virgin Mary."

“If Donald Trump has three more years like the year he just had of amazing successes, he can run against a combined ticket of Jesus and the Virgin Mary and he will still win in 2020,” said Steve Cortes, a Fox News contributor, during an interview on Fox Business Network.
